revisiting the thread and basically the same request.

I've taken off the lead at 3/9 & 5/7 but still have the BB Leather (which is basically Volkl). I have counter balanced at 12 on one racquet and 2/10 on another. Both are def lighter but still want to drop the weight.

Any suggestions on light leather grips? The local store said that Gamma was the lightest and I should also consider Babolat Skin Feel.

I have a stock racquet (synthetic grip) and have balanced my leather gripped racquet to match it. I don't want to make the racquet lighter (is Babolat Skin Feel lighter than a stock grip?) but really like the feel of the bevels ( i play with an OG) and I like the stock balance.

Your thoughts.
